5 Star Rated Company! Get Your Free Quote!

Commercial coatings create an enduring, resilient surface that companies love. However, to make the most out of your floors and keep them in pristine condition, proper maintenance is a must.

With our in-depth knowledge as coating experts, the team at Con-Tek Floors can give you some amazing insight to take full advantage of your coated or polished concrete floors. Keep reading to learn more!

Know the Lifespan of Your Specific Coating

No matter how good you get at regular concrete floor care and maintenance, your floors will eventually require refinishing. The average lifespan of a coating depends on the specific product used. Consider the following:

  • Epoxy: 10 to 20 years
  • Polyurea: 15+ years
  • Polyaspartic: 20+ years

Keep in mind that these are only estimates. Factors like foot traffic and environmental conditions can alter your coating’s lifespan. Feel free to contact us for an assessment if you’re unsure!

Regular Sweeping Makes a Big Difference

Neglecting to clean dust, dirt, and other abrasive particles from your floors can have serious implications on the coating, such as scratches, scuffs, and discoloration.

The solution? Sweeping! When done regularly, sweeping will keep dust away from your flooring. Vacuum cleaning can also be incredibly effective in battling dirt and grime.

Mop Every so Often for a Spotless Shine

While sweeping and vacuuming can go a long way toward keeping your coated floor systems in good condition, mopping should also become a regular part of your routine. Always choose softer materials like microfiber cloths and sponges.

Mopping with water alone can usually do the job, but if you need something for tougher buildup, use a product specifically made for coated floors. Avoid “all-purpose” or “general” cleaners because they might contain additives that can dull the surface.

Take Immediate Action Against Stains

Even though commercial coatings offer a reliable defense against liquids, you never want to take chances with spills and messes. Timely action is essential when it comes to preventing lasting stains, no matter what kind of liquid has caused the issue.

Below are some of the most common staining culprits and how to tackle them:

Grease Buildup

Kitchens, restaurants, and other food service businesses must be aware of grease. Follow these steps to clean up grease and other spilled liquids:

  • Dampen the affected area with a cloth
  • Apply trisodium phosphate (TSP) or a degreaser
  • Let it sit for the recommended amount of time
  • Scrub with a non-abrasive mop and rinse with water

Remember that dealing with a light layer of grease is easier than removing caked-on grime. Sticking to a regular cleaning program will prevent dirt and grease from accumulating into difficult-to-remove spots.

Corrosive Chemicals

Industrial facilities that utilize corrosive materials need to remain extra mindful. Even slight exposure can result in large-scale destruction. Keep an eye out for these leading risks:

  • Battery acid
  • Sodium hydroxide
  • Hydrochloric acid
  • Potassium hydroxide

When tackling the mess, make sure to use a proper neutralizing agent and wear protective gear. You should also generally avoid pouring water over the substance, as it could create an unwanted chemical reaction that ends up harming your floors even more in the process.

Vehicle Liquids

Do you manage or own a garage or car maintenance facility? When left untreated, the following automotive fluids can compromise your commercial coatings:

  • Car oil
  • Break liquid
  • Antifreeze
  • Transmission fluid
  • Coolant

Clean up any spills right away with absorbent wipes or paper towels. Then, apply a neutralizing agent designed for removing oil-based residue.

Rust Contamination

Your floors won’t oxidize on their own. Unfortunately, frequent contact with rusted items like tools and machinery can still damage them.

You can rectify this issue by:

  • Sweeping the area
  • Treating it with a rust remover
  • Rinse and dry the surface afterward

Cleaning your floor won’t do much if you don’t address the offending items. Treat them with a rust inhibitor and keep them away from moisture.

Consult a Professional

The toughest cases might require professional intervention. Let us know if you encounter these problems:

  • Excessive wear and tear
  • Stubborn discoloration or fading
  • Erosion caused by acids or chemicals

Our team of experienced technicians can assess the situation and offer cost-effective solutions to restore your flooring. In most cases, a light resurfacing or re-coating does the job.

Shield Your Flooring with Protective Items

If your floors lie near sources of high heat and chemical fumes, consider using additional protective barriers to reduce the risk of damage. Invest in products like:

  • Felt pads and door mats
  • Foam or rubber mats
  • Floor protectors

Preventative measures always make a wiser (and more cost-effective) choice than trying to fix the damage afterward. We can’t count the number of times a client has called us for expensive repairs that were avoidable with proactive maintenance.

What are concrete coatings?

Our epoxy floor coatings are a concrete resurfacing option that is installed over existing concrete floors for both interior and exterior concrete. All of our coatings are installed by hand (we do not use any stamps), thus giving our clients a true, one-of-a-kind floor. We install a wide range of flooring systems such as: 100% solid epoxy, concrete stain, acrylic cement, and rubber based products.

Clients have the ability to customize any coating with our various color options and design techniques. Concrete Coatings are used not only in residential, but industrial and recreational settings as well. ConTek Coating uses only the highest quality, industrial products on the market to ensure every customer is getting the best value.

How Much Do Your Concrete Floor Coatings Cost?

Each project is customized to your particular concrete flooring needs. Every job we do is different, because we offer different types of coatings and finishes.  We will work with you to develop a free estimate keeping your budget in mind. 

How Durable Are Your Epoxy Concrete Coating Systems??

We use only industrial products on all of our epoxy floor projects. They are designed to give clients the most value and longevity over any other coating material on the market. Just to give you an idea of how strong our products are, we installed an epoxy flake floor in the garage of a Fire Station in 2008 to protect the firehouse’s garage from dirt, debris, salt, and the extreme work environment. Due to our expertise and industrial coatings, we have yet to receive a repair call. Those same products are used in all of our residential projects.

How long does a typical epoxy flooring project take to complete?

A typical residential project takes approximately 3 – 5 days to complete depending on several variables. Variables include, but are not limited to: size of job, repairs and/or preparation requirements, weather, additional design details, customer requests, etc.

What if I already have an existing concrete coating?

We must grind off any existing coating and repair materials before we can install any of our concrete coatings. This ensures the integrity and longevity of our flooring systems.

How Long Do I Need To Stay Off My Concrete Floor Coating After It Is Installed?

If using 100% solids epoxy, your floor will be cured and walkable in about 12-18 hours. You can return to full heavy traffic after about 24 - 72 hours. Wait for at least 24 hours before moving light weight furniture on your brand new concrete coating flooring. Before moving anything heavy (car, equipment and furniture).

How do you prepare concrete for resurfacing?

We start every project by first preparing the concrete for our products. It is imperative that we have a fresh concrete surface before installing our concrete coatings on your project – this will allow our products to have only the BEST mechanical bond.

We spend approximately 66% of the project prepping your floor which may either be by diamond grinding or shot grinding the concrete (depending on the location of the project) and in some cases we do both! Some contractors will come in and just acid wash or not even prep your floor – we get calls all the time about botched installs with customers asking if we can save their project; we must start fresh every time.

Will I Need To Reseal My Concrete Floor Coating?

If you follow our maintenance and cleaning guidelines, you should not have to worry about resealing the concrete floor coating. We offer a professional grade cleaner that will easily remove stains or tire marks, but will also preserve the life of your concrete coating topcoat.

What If My Concrete Floor Has Cracks, Chips And Is Old?

No worries, we are experts in repairing existing problem areas of concrete. In some cases we have been found to be a cheaper alternative over tearing out and replacing existing slabs of concrete. Once we have saved your concrete we then install our decorative designs to hide the flaws and repairs.

How Do I Care For My Concrete Floor Coating?

You can clean our concrete coatings with typical sweeping or mopping. 

Will Oil Stain My Concrete Floor Coating?

Epoxy floor coatings are extremely resistant to most hazards, including cleaners, gas, oil, transmission fluid, and even most industrial chemicals. Our epoxy concrete coatings system is both oil and moisture resistant.

Who Invented Polyurea Coatings?

Andy Phelan, director of business development and training at Rhino Linings Corporation, explains, “Polyurea was invented in the early 1980s when a less moisture-sensitive form of polyurethane was desired. By replacing the hydroxyl group in the urethane with an amine group, a product we now call polyurea was formed.

What Are Polyurea Concrete Coatings?

Polyurea is useful for concrete floors, as it quickly and strongly bonds to concrete while providing a smooth, virtually impermeable surface that protects the floor from impact, water damage, chemicals, heat, and sunlight.

What Types Of Environments Can Epoxy Floor Coatings Be Used?

Epoxy flooring coatings can be used in a variety of environments.  The durability, slip resistant finish is fantastic for any industrial setting, storefronts or garages.

How Are Epoxy Floor Coatings Applied?

We have perfected a six step process for applying Epoxy Floor Coatings that involves prepping the floor, prime floor with epoxy primer, fill all cracks, holes with epoxy grout, then apply epoxy paint. 

Can I Apply Epoxy Floor Coatings In Cold Temperatures?

You can!  Epoxy can be used at cold temperatures but must be handled and applied with techniques adapted to cold temperatures.

Do I Need To Hire A Professional To Install Epoxy Floor Coating?

Installing Epoxy Floor Coating correctly is critical to the appearance and durability of your flooring.  Hiring a professional is the best way to ensure that your flooring will look amazing and last a lifetime! 

Does My Concrete Floor Coating Come With A Warranty?

We provide a 10 year warranty on your concrete floor coatings against peeling, delamination and wear for as long as you own your home.

"Austin applied a polyaspartic epoxy solid-color coating to our garage. The work -- which included grinding off the old coating and the application of three coats of polyaspartic (primer coat + 2) -- was done meticulously. The new coating looks great and the sand added to the primer coat has eliminated the slippery nature of the old coating. Austin was exceptional to deal with from start to finish. He communicated by phone, e-mail & text...always in a timely and totally professional manner. I highly recommend this company."

"We hired Austin to level our basement floors before we installed vinyl flooring. He was on time, a pleasure to work with, clean, reasonable and our basement floors look amazing. We recommend and we would use his services again. After the floors were completed he was kind enough to drop off a thank you and some delicious coffee for us try. Thank you Austin!"
